Dear Colleagues,

We will convene a *Citizen science *session at AGU 2017 Fall Meeting in New
Orleans. Please consider submitting an abstract if you are interested in,
note the deadline for abstract submission is this *Wednesday August 2nd*.

*S007: *
*Citizen science in

Citizen science enables public participants to make a direct contribution
to seismological research, increase their scientific understanding and
immerse themselves deeply afield in learning about earthquakes. In this
session, we would like to invite contributions from citizen science
projects in seismology. We welcome studies that related but not limited to
engage the public in gathering or obtaining insights from various
earthquake observations, such as sensors, social network, internet-based
information and others. Public educations about learning various aspects of
earthquakes through novel ways are also encouraged. We hope to show citizen
science projects play an important role in seismology and encourage
discussions of better ways to engage and educate public about earthquake
